Description of Service
Truthify is a mobile application that uses facial imaging technology and machine learning capabilities to estimate the emotions, age, gender, and ethnicity of a subject for videos the subject chooses to watch. When a subject watches a video, no images or video will be captured. Truthify will only share the subject's estimated emotions, age, gender, and ethnicity for those videos a subject chooses to watch. Our Service allows a user to record a brief video (up to 30 seconds) on their mobile device. The user then selects one or many recipients to whom they may send the video. Once a recipient receives the video, the user watches the video and his/her mobile device analyzes the facial micro-expressions to determine the emotions exhibited while watching the video. Once the video is finished, the recipient is provided a report documenting those results, and the same results are provided back to the original user. The original user receives both the individual results as well as the aggregate results if the video was sent to multiple recipients. The Truthify website will provide general marketing information to the user and will provide a means for individuals to watch videos that users have agreed to make public.

Privacy and Your Personal Information
Video Privacy Settings
It is very important to us that your privacy is protected at all times. To accomplish this, there are eight privacy settings (Share Settings) in the Truthify app which permit sixteen (16) different sharing scenarios and privacy levels. By using our Service you agree and consent to the sharing of your videos in accordance with the settings you have selected from those set forth below, and agree to hold Truthify harmless for any injuries, damages or claims you may have or have suffered resulting from sharing or watching videos.
Most importantly, your name will never be shared with anyone unless you have chosen to connect with other Truthify users (called Truthify friends). If a recipient is not connected as a Truthify friend in the application with the sender or other recipient(s), their name will not be visible and instead “Recipient X” or “Anonymous” will be shown. If the recipient has chosen to connect to the sender and/or recipient(s), then the name will appear in the individual results section. The sender’s name is ALWAYS displayed for recipients.
- Allow Reshare (enabled) – Truthify videos can be reshared by recipients through the Truthify application by swiping right on the video title.
- Allow Reshare (disabled) - If Allow Reshare is disabled, then recipients will be unable to reshare a video through the application. Please note, should you choose to share a video through a third-party application via link, recipients could reshare that link.
- Display Summary Results (enabled) – If enabled, the recipients will be able to view the overall summary of individual responses. This summary indicates the top two (2) emotions exhibited by all individual recipients of the video.
- Display Summary Results (disabled) – Summary results will not be visible, and the summary will instead show only the recipient’s own results in the summary.
- Display Individual Results (enabled) – Individual results will be visible by recipients. The sender will be able to see all individual results, but will not see names unless recipients are connected as Truthify friends.
- Display Individual Results (disabled) – If disabled, no individual results will be displayed to recipients other than their own result. The sender will be able to see all individual results, but will not see names unless recipients are connected as Truthify friends.
- Anonymous Results (enabled) – All individual recipients’ names will be hidden from the sender and recipients, regardless of whether recipient is a Truthify friend. This can be very helpful for polling types of use cases.
- Anonymous Results (disabled) – All individual recipients’ names will be visible to the sender and recipients only if connected as a Truthify friend.

You understand that we currently do not conduct any background checks including, without limitation, criminal, financial or any other background checks or screenings. We make no representations or warranties as to the conduct of the people you choose to interact with. While not obligated to do so, Truthify reserves the right at its sole discretion to conduct any background check or other screenings at any time and using available public records.
- You assume all risk when using the Services, including, without limitation, all risks associated with any online or offline personal interactions with others.
- In no event shall Truthify, its employees, consultants, executives or officers be liable (directly or indirectly) for any losses or damages whatsoever, whether direct, indirect, general, special, compensatory, consequential, and/or incidental, arising out of or relating to the conduct of a user or anyone else in connection with the use of the Service including, without limitation, theft, bodily injury, emotional distress, death and/or any other damages resulting from communications with, contact with or personal interaction with other users.
- Users should not provide their financial information, including, but not limited to credit card or bank account information, or wire or otherwise send money, to other users.
You agree that you will be personally responsible for your use of the Service and you agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Truthify and its officers, directors, employees, consultants, affiliates, subsidiaries and agents from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, losses and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ and accounting fees and costs, arising out of or in any way connected with (i) your access to, use of, or alleged use of the Service; (ii) your violation of these Terms of Service or any representation, warranty, or agreements referenced herein, or any applicable law or regulation; (iii) your infringement upon the property rights, intellectual property rights (copyrights and trademarks) or other rights of others; (iv) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation publicity, confidentiality, or privacy right; (v) any death, or serious physical or serious emotional harm, to you or any third party resulting from your use of the Services, or (vi) any disputes or issues between you and any third party.
We reserve the right, at our own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, and in such case, you agree to cooperate with our defense of such claim.
By using the Services, you release, to the maximum extent allowed by law, Truthify, its officers, directors, employees, affiliates, and agents from claims, demands and damages of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with your use of the Services, and any interaction with other users through the Services, including without limitation, any death or serious emotional or serious physical harm.
If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
You acknowledge that we may be irreparably damaged if this Agreement is not specifically enforced, and damages at law would be an inadequate remedy. Therefore, in the event of a breach or threatened breach of any provision of this Agreement by you, we shall be entitled, in addition to all rights and remedies, to an injunction restraining such breach or threatened breach, without being required to show any actual damage or to post an injunction bond, and/or to a decree for specific performance of the provisions of this Agreement.
For purposes of this Section, you agree that any action or proceeding with regard to such injunction restraining such breach or threatened breach shall be brought in the courts of record of the State of Georgia, or a United States District Court for the State of Georgia, Cobb County. You consent to the jurisdiction of such court and waive any objection to the venue of any such action or proceeding in such court.
THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS AN AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE WHICH WILL, WITH LIMITED EXCEPTION, REQUIRE YOU TO SUBMIT CLAIMS YOU HAVE AGAINST US TO BINDING AND FINAL ARBITRATION. THIS AGREEMENT ALSO CONTAINS AN AGREEMENT THAT YOU WILL ONLY BE PERMITTED TO PURSUE CLAIMS AGAINST US ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS CAREFULLY BEFORE ACCESSING OR USING ANY OF THE SERVICE. EACH TIME YOU ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICE, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISION AND THE CLASS ACTION WAIVER YOU MAY NOT ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICE.
For any dispute you have with Truthify, you agree to first contact us at email@example.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. If Truthify has not been able to resolve the dispute with you informally, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy as follows:
- You and we agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity between us relating in any way to or arising out of this or previous versions of this Agreement, your use of or access to the Services will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Legal Disputes section. Please read this section carefully. It affects your rights and will have a substantial impact on how claims you and we have against each other are resolved.
- Applicable Law. You agree that the laws of the State of Georgia, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern this Agreement and any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and us, except as otherwise stated in this Agreement.
- Agreement to Arbitrate. You and we each agree that any and all disputes or claims between you and us relating in any way to or arising out of this or previous versions of this Agreement, your use of or access to our Services, or any products or services delivered, sold, offered, or purchased through our Services shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify.
- Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S OR PARTY'S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OUR OTHER USERS.
- Arbitration Procedures. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. An arbitrator should apply the terms of this Agreement as a court would. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement to Arbitrate, any part of it, or of this Agreement including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of the Agreement to Arbitrate or this Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under its rules and procedures, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (as applicable), as modified by this Agreement to Arbitrate. The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the State of Georgia, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving our other users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same user to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator's award shall be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
- Judicial Forum for Legal Disputes. Unless you and we agree otherwise, in the event that the Agreement to Arbitrate above is found not to apply to you or to a particular claim or dispute as a result of a decision by the arbitrator or a court order, you agree that any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and us must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in the State of Georgia, Cobb County. You and we agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Georgia for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes. You also agree that: (i) our Services shall be deemed solely based in the State of Georgia; and (ii) our Services shall be deemed passive Services that do not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us and our assigns, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than the State of Georgia.
Truthify is committed to cooperating with law enforcement while respecting each individual’s right to privacy. If Truthify receives a request for user account information from a government agency investigating criminal activity, we will review the request to be certain that it satisfies all legal requirements before releasing information to the requesting agency.
Furthermore, under 18 U.S.C. §§ 2702(b)(8) and 2702(c)(4) (Voluntary Disclosure Of Customer Communications or Records), Truthify may disclose user account information to law enforcement, without a subpoena, court order, or search warrant, in response to a valid emergency when we believe that doing so is necessary to prevent death or serious physical harm to someone. Truthify will not release more information than it prudently believes is necessary to prevent harm in an emergency situation.
